    Hello there,

    I've got an environment with two separate NetWorker 7.5SP1 (on Server 2003 R1, 32-bit) servers. Each server has its own tape library (HP ESL-series) and also acts as the storage node. I'm trying to figure out a way to clone tapes from one of the NetWorker servers to the other.

    Using nsrclone, I can start a tape clone job on either server but it keeps cloning to the clone pool on the same server. I can't figure out whether I can clone from one server to the other. Just for kicks, I tried nsrclone -s <server1> -J <server2> but I end up with a message saying that server1 is "busy".

    Any ideas? Is this even possible?

    And I apologize if this has been mentioned before - I did a search for "nsrclone" and it only came up with two hits.

    Thank you for your time!

    This will not work as the tapes are unknown for one site. Both SNs must belong to the same data zone (NW server).
